Lance Cade was injured at the World Wrestling Entertainment event in Atlanta, GA, on December 28. He apparently separated his shoulder, and is expected to be out of action for at least a month. Also, it appears the Ring of Honor show on December 29 in New York was costly in terms of injuries. Nigel McGuinness, Bryan Danielson, and Rocky Romero are reported to have each suffered concussions, and that McGuinness also received a broken nose, requiring more than a dozen stitches. (Rich Tate)

The freak injury Shadow Jackson suffered during Saturday night’s NWA Anarchy show is going to require surgery that will likely put him out action for an extended period of time. Jackson injured his Achilles tendon when he stepped on Jerry Palmer’s ax handle. (Larry Goodman)
